Etihad Airways has put a nice price tag on its nonstop service between Athens and Abu Dhabi, selling tickets from Greece to the UAE for €154. This fare includes full board service, but surprisingly no checked bags. Those can be added for €100 on Etihad’s website.
Due to Etihad’s generous rebooking policies, you are able to change your travel date and destinations without further cost.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Our availability calendar shows you all possible round trips at the lowest fare for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to etihad.com or our flight search.
Etihad deploys Airbus A320 narrow body aircraft between Athens and Abu Dhabi. These feature the usual 3-3 seating in economy. Disappointingly, Etihad decided to gradually remove personal entertainment systems from these aircraft in 2019. You will most likely be left with your own devices to stream media during the flight.

According to the fare rules, tickets are on sale until June 30, 2022, for departures between today and April 23, 2023. However, availability ceases in June 2022. The minimum stay requirement is 3 days. Furthermore, your stay cannot exceed three months. The tickets have to be booked at least 5 days before departure.
Google Flights previews available flight dates accurately. We recommend booking directly on Etihad’s website to benefit from their rebooking policy, but you can also check out online travel agencies who sell these tickets €20 cheaper.
Rebooking These Tickets
According to EtihadHub.com, you can change your travel date and even destinations (within a certain radius) without any additional costs. This goodwill policy covers tickets with travel dates before May 31, 2022. While a bunch of FlyerTalk users claim to have done this successfully, we can’t guarantee it will work. But the option makes this offer much more attractive.
